Children’s Parties

We are delighted to offer children’s parties as part of our education programme, with a range of outdoor activities to give your child and their friends a birthday to remember. With acres of land to explore and two hour long activity sessions running from 10:30-12:30, followed by a picnic lunch, a unique birthday party is guaranteed.

We can cater for up to 20 children, and up to 6 adults accompanying the party will have free entry to the arboretum.

Though families often bring their own food and cake, packed lunches and birthday cake can be ordered from the cafe by prior arrangement.

Party bags can ordered in advance, and include a magnifying glass, collection pot, notebook and pen.

Parties are priced at £150 (£125 plus VAT).
